      The OEM VW wheels? I doubt they're light at all... how much do they weigh?

      The spring is unlikely the main concern. I'd be much more concerned about the dampers. Look up "hybrid coilovers" and you can see write ups where guys take cheap race lands, disassemble them and...
    3. B5.5 Carbon Fiber Hood - Group Buy Feeler

      I'm talking with VIS Racing about doing a small run of carbon fibers hood for the B5.5. As you may know, there are only like 4 CF hoods in existence for the B5.5, and no one currently manufactures...

      Feeler: WTT for light weight 18" wheels

      Want to go a different direction...

      I have 19x9.5 Avant Garde M550. I'd give them a 8.5 out of 10. No curb rash or any damage. Just your average 10k miles of use on them. Never seen snow.
      They...

      Yes, direct bolt on. B6 or B7 S4 calipers, carriers and brake lines, B8 S4 or S5 rotors. I still have the stock W8 dust shields on, and they don't pose any problem, but you could just remove them...

      The joints rarely catastrophically fail without warning. When they're bad, you'll start making a clicking/popping sound, and even then you can go a while on that. A lot of people replace the entire...

      Well if the TC has already been replaced once lets hope you won't have a problem with it for a while. I do all my own work, and do it in my own garage without a lift. I bought my W8 at 114k and it...

      I think you need to check your numbers. There was only ~4,900 W8s total (auto and manual) sold in North America, and 6 speeds definitely do not make up most of them. Only 424 6 speed W8s made it...

      Transmission mounts are a piece of cake. Get a jack under the transmission (preferably with a block of wood between the trans a jack, just to protect the trans) and remove the 2 bolts and 1 nut, and...

      You seem to know the risks of the W8, and it seems like your price would be very good. Honestly, I would rather buy a high mileage one than one with low miles because to me, a low mileage one means...

      Totally agree. AWD with an O1E, and all the extra chassis bracing a the W8 comes with, it's really tempting to do something with. I've always planned on swapping in a 2.7t when the W8 goes out, maybe...

      No, just the stock ones. The bolts don't line up between he two.

      The center bore of the wheel doesn't equal the bore of the rotor. The rotors have the same bore. The hub has a lip that "steps up" where to rotor sits.

      This is not my picture, but it shows this...

      Bump, still interested in letting this go. Bought a 2nd car, so no trades please. Still don't need it to go, it's just sitting in the garage collecting dust though. Figure if someone wants it, now's...
